    CBA and International Signings

    With the Dodgers winning rights to the Korean pitcher, forgetting his name at the moment, I was wondering how this effects them under the new CBA. Does the cap on international signings create a tax if you go to high? Are signings from Korea and Japan exempted? Do posting fees not count? Just curious.

    Per the new international rules in the Collective Bargaining Agreement, players who are at least 23 and have played five years in a recognized professional league such as the KBO will be exempt from the international bonus pools, so Ryu (who turns 26 in March and has pitched seven seasons for Hanwha) will not count against the Dodgers' 2012-13 international bonus pool if he signs.
